Gyuto, literally means "Beef knife" . The Japanese did not consume beef until it began to modernise with increased Western influence in the late 1800's. During that period, when Japanese thought of Western food, they thought of giant slabs of beef being cut and grilled or stewed, thus the "Gyuto" was born.In modern times it is the most common knife in Japanese households, with also the most variety of steel,blade lengths and handle materials available.
Professionals often use in the 240mm-270mm size range. For home use, the most popular size is 180mm-210mm.
Swedish Stainless Steel is pure and versatile steel for knives. It is rust resistent, relatively hard but also easy to sharpen.
Our synthetic Marble handles are durable,hygienic and easy to clean. Our craftsmen shape and polish the handles through several processes to provide a tactile feeling that does not tire the hand after prolonged use.
A full steel blade or Mono-Steel blade means that only one type of steel has been used in its construction from spine to edge. Making knives with a single steel type requires expert attention during the manufacturing process to ensure the blade does not become overly brittle or warped. Differentiating a high quality Mono-Steel Blade from a low quality Mono-Steel blade can be quite difficult at a quick glance.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.
It has been 600 years since the birth of swordmaking in the Sakai region of Japan. Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide's and it's craftsmen continue to build on that legacy by producing the finest blades in Japan.
This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
